Very useful Flat racer Birds Of Prey has shown more than enough over hurdles to suggest he can win a race of this nature soon but UMNDENI may have greater potential in this sphere in the longer term and gets the nod. The Philip Hobbs-trained 5yo was unfortunate to suffer a mishap at the start when due to step up in trip over C&D a fortnight ago and will be hard to beat if building upon his very encouraging effort in a good Newbury maiden last month.[Chris Wilson]

Bumper winner; lacked fluency when fourth on seasonal/hurdle debut at Chepstow (2m, good) in October but was creditable fifth in big-field Newbury maiden (2m, soft) last month and is a leading contender on that evidence; lost jockey when bumped at start here a fortnight ago.

Useful Flat racer who was fourth in last year's November Handicap; beaten odds-on favourite when runner-up in two Taunton novice hurdles last month (2m/2m3f) but ran to fairly useful level on both occasions and has scope for improvement in this sphere; respected.

Rallied gamely to win heavy-ground Uttoxeter bumper last April but made underwhelming hurdle debut at Plumpton last month and needs to take a big step forward.

Changed hands for £75,000 soon after finishing second of 14 in heavy-ground Irish point in March; disappointing favourite when only fifth of seven on rules debut at Ffos Las (2m4f, heavy) last month but ought to be capable of better.

In front when falling at final fence on Irish point debut in May 2017 and bought for £48,000 two months later; makes hurdle debut after 630-day absence and has good standard to aim at, but certainly worth keeping an eye on with the future in mind.
